Illegal voting was allegedly discovered in Wisconsin, leading to the prosecution of a man who was already on probation.
Donald Holz, 63, on probation for his sixth felony of impaired driving, is alleged to have voted illegally in the November 2020 election, Fox 6 reported.
A criminal complaint states that a Wisconsin Elections Commission employee on Aug. 24, 2021 submitted documentation that Holz voted in the Nov. 3, 2020 election. Holz was on active probation at the time – sentenced for sixth offense felony OWI in 2019.
The complaint states Holz signed his voter application as “I am a qualified elector” as opposed to being “otherwise disqualified from voting.” In 2019, on the date of his sentencing, Holz signed a voter ineligibility acknowledgment form. That form, the complaint states, explicitly states that Holz was not eligible to vote until “civil rights were restored,” which could not happen until completing his probation sentencing.
Holz is scheduled for an initial court appearance on Oct. 12. If convicted, he faces imprisonment up to three-and-a-half years in prison and/or a fine up to $10,000.
Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney issued a statement stating that the prosecution of Holz does not mean that any election was stolen.
“This prosecution is not suggestive that the election was stolen but elections are the cornerstone of our democracy and the integrity of our electoral process must be protected at every turn. We will continue to prosecute any circumstances of voter fraud, as allowed by law, in order to safeguard our electoral process and ensure the public has confidence in our elections. The defendant is presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty,” he said.
According to an August survey from Rasmussen Reports, a whopping 90 percent of American voters are concerned with election cheating.
The poll also found that 74 percent of Americans support voter ID.
The report added:
Voters overwhelmingly believe it’s important to prevent cheating in elections and agree that requiring photo identification is a reasonable measure to ensure election integrity.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 90% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is important to prevent cheating in elections, including 79% who say it’s Very Important.
Only seven percent (7%) of voters believe it’s not important to prevent election cheating.
Another Rasmussen poll found that most voters agree with Donald Trump on the need for state election reforms.
The poll found that 61 percent of likely voters agree with a statement Trump issued on his website, which said: “Election Reform must happen in Swing States like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Arizona where voters have lost confidence in their electoral process.”
-That includes 42% who Strongly Agree. Thirty-four percent (34%) of voters disagree with Trump’s statement, including 25% who Strongly Disagree.
-The percentage of voters agreeing with Trump’s statement was larger than those agreeing with a quote from a recent speech by Biden, who said America is “facing the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War.” Fifty-six percent (56%) agree with Biden, including 33% who Strongly Agree.
-Thirty-seven percent (37%) disagree with Biden, including 26% who strongly disagree.
Late last month, a poll found that one-third of Americans believe that Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election because of fraud, according to a new Monmouth University poll.
The poll found that 32 percent of respondents believe fraud was the reason Biden won the presidential election.
Sixty-three percent of GOP voters and Republican-leaning voters say that Biden was not legitimately elected president.
The Monmouth poll found that 14 percent said they will never accept Biden as the legitimate president.
Thirty-three percent of respondents said they believe efforts by state legislatures to audit the results of the 2020 election are legitimate.
